About us

Supporting global business owners who are taking on the challenge of solving the social problems of global resources and economic disparity through technology-based global business matching

We are a global business matching service that combines the innovation power of global startups with the kaizen power of Japanese SMEs.

We create opportunities for executives who want to solve global social problems through business to meet, share value and create new businesses in the world through technology-enabled business matching. There are three important things that make global business matching a success. First is having a vision for creating a sustainable world and being committed to it. Secondly is being able to achieve this vision on a global scale. Lastly, they must not try to do everything themselves, but instead use their strengths to win. It is said that Japan does not have a strong capacity for disruptive innovation. However, Japan is good at efficient innovation, mainly through kaizen (continous process improvement), and sustained innovation through the improvement of existing products and services. Japanese companies can contribute to improving the quality of innovation around the world and spreading it around the world.
